The San Diego American says:

The McKinley boom may burst all right
enough, but the American is mistaken
when it says that it is based on fictitious
values. It is based on the value of the
government's power of taxation which Mc-
Kinley has pledged to the tariff trusts and
monopolists in the event of his nomina
tion and election, and there is nothing
fictitious about that value.
Notwithstanding the enormous amount
of building Los Angeles has been the scene
of the last few years, the work still goes
on. The average of buildings of all kinds
since the opening of the year lias been
equal to that of any similar period of
former years. The indications are strong
that the total number of permits for March
of 1896 will exceed that of the same month
in 1895. which was counted as an excep
tionally busy month. As empty houses of
• fairly desirable kind are as scarce as
heretofore, it is plain that this extraordi
nary building is the symptom of an ex
traordinary growth in the city's population.
In fact, if the crowds seen on Spring,
Broadway and Main streets during a fine
day—which means, of course, about every
day—afford any criterion, one might al
most be justified iv supposing that Los
Angeles had about doubled up in popula
tion the last twelve months. We are

The passage by the house of an amend
ment to the legislative bill providing for a
change in the method of compensating
United States district attorneys and
marshals is a step in the right direction.
The manner in which the change is
wrought may not be the host, and as Sena
tor Hoar claimed, the object is of sufficient
importance to justify separate treatment.
But the change alio dd be made, and has
already waited too long. The offices
affected are among the mo3t important
in the federal civil service, aud they
should be filled by men prepared to
give their entire time and attention to the
duties of the positions, while the salaries
should be sufficiently remunerative to en
able the employment of men fully compe
tent for the performance of those tluties.
Tbe fee system of compensation has
always given rise to abuses of authority

to neglect a public duty when the perform
ance of a private one will net more profit
than the fee allowed for the other.

• Soudan expedition because of the appa
rent unpopularity of the project in Eng
land, but the course of the sultan in ap
pealing to Russia and France for aid in
regulating affairs in may stimulate
the government to persevere in its cam
paign. If the sultan really did desire to
check the British advancs in the territory
tbat ia nominally governed by the khedive,
be has taken a very unwise step. The in
tervention of Kuasia, England's traditional
enemy, and France, against which a large
part of the Kngliah people yet cherish
sentiments of hostility, will serve to

■sent a good portion of the people now op
posed to it. Tbe English will look at
the matter very much as a multitude of
southerners viewed the cause of the so uth
in the civil war. They were opposed to
their state's sec "ding, but nevertheless be
lieved in the right of secession, and when
that right was denied they were ready to
tight for it. It is plain that England does
not feel as isolated as she tlid a few
months since. She has patched up things
with Germany, Austria and Italy have not
been estranged for a long while and seem
more friendly now than ever, and she has
apparently relieved herself of the pros
liects of trouble with this country over the
Venezuelan boundary affair. It is doubt
ful if the Russian bear and the French
eagles will deter her inarch on the strong
hold of the Mahdi. What the latter may
do is by no means certain. The interior of
Africa has not always been the most favor
able spot in the world for the soldiers of
Great Britain or Europe. The signal vic

On Sunday, November 10, 1895. The
Hi kai.d ran up the name of John G- Car
lisle over a double-leaded editorial urging,
with some insistence, his availability as a
Democratic presidential candidate. It
may not be deemed a matter of imperti
nence to now declare, in view of recent po
litical developments in the east indicating
a movement favorable to Mr. Carlisle's
candidacy, that The Hkkai.ii's nomination
of the great Kentttckian was based solely
and precisely on the grounds set forth in
•he aforesaid editorial utterance. There
has been no pipe-line communication be
tween The Herald and the White House
at Washington, through which was "tipped
off" to this paper the excogitations of Pres
ident Cleveland touching the man after his
own heart to wear the civic crown "richer
from the brows of one who uttered nothing

management owes no debt for individual
favors to the present administration, save
such as is due from every country-loving
citizen to an able and conscientious public
servant who has consecrated his time and
toil to what he conceives to be the best in
terests of the commonweal.
It may or may not be true that Presi
dent Cleveland is solicitous that Secretary
Carlisle shall become his residuary legatee.
But he is The Heb-iLu s choice for the
nomination to be made at Chicago. The
reasons for its constancy to Mr. Carlisle
can be repeated, without modification,
from its issue of November 10, 1895:
The Herald lu»s no hesitancy in declar
ing that it discerns upon the Democratic
horizon but one man who fulfills all the
requirements of the situation, both at
large and in detail.
The best production of Ihe post-bellum,
or new, south, in all the elements that go
to constitute a statesman, is John G. Car
lisle of Kentucky, ex-congressman, ex
speaker of the house of representatives,
ex-senator and present secretary of the
treasury: a Democrat who has been con
tinuously ascending the political ladder,
and. mounting from point to point, has
occupied no position that he did not
adorn; a statesman who, all things con
sidered, and irrespective of party, is the
brainiest and worthiest among those who
might aspire to wear the great mantle
which Grover Cleveland will doff for his
successor in the presidential chair; a man
of whom it may be said, as was written of
the Roman F'abricius," 'Twere as easy to
turn tbe sun from his course as Fabricius
from the path of honor."
Secretary Carlisle is Democracy personi
fied. He is a platform in himself. He
Btands for fidelity to the letter and spirit
of the federal constitution; consecration
to the interests of the mass of the people
against the spoliations and encroachments
of the protectt . few; devotion to home
rule, personal liberty, national economy
and sound money; aspiration for the
peace, progress and universal fraternity of
our common country.
The Herald affirms advisedly that no
man—not even the president—possesses to
a greater degree than the secretary of the
treasury the confidence and respect of the
financial and commercial world. His atti
tude for the maintenance of the national
credit, by preserving the parity of all
American dollars,inspires unqualified con
fidence in his reliability as a financier, and
his unequaled powers in logical analysis of
financial fallacies affords assurance that
he will continue to be tbe potent factor he
has already proven in dissipating mone
taiy vagaries in the south and middle west.
As an expounder of the Democratic doc
trine of a tariff levied for public purposes
only—to gather the maximum of revenue
and afford the minimum of protection to
private interests—Mr. Carlisle is conceded
to he in the front rank, if not the first
and ablest between the two oceans.
Carlisle measured against McKinley
would make up the issue between the two
great parties upon the tariff question, with
out reference to the glittering generalities
of party platforms.
1 hat the great secretary, as the first
presidential candidate from the south since
the war, and one, too, of whom the whole
section is justly proud, would carry every
southern state; will not be reckoned a
doubtful proposition by intelligent politi
Los Ancei.es Theater—Tha opportun
ity for tine spectacular effects, tlte per
sonality of his satanic majesty and
Goethe's grand lines are the prominent
features which render the tragic story of
Fauat an attractive and popular play.
Morrison's company have for many years
enjoyed a wide reputation in this produc
tion. They carry extensive and elaborate
scenery, including those electrical elfects
which are so suggestive 0 f the powers of
the evil one, and the company is on the
whole a capable one.
The Mephisto of Mr. W. L. Roberts is
incomparably a superior portrayal to that
of any other member of the combination,
lie has a line voice and exceptionally good
elocutionary powers; he makes an allur
ing and shapely devil; besides these nat
ural advantages Mr. Roberts has made a
very clever study of the part, and his act
ing is characterized throughout by a subtle
and virile force.
With the rest of the company there is a
damning tendency to mouth and rant,
which sadly depreciates the merits of their
acting. Mies Olwe Martin, as Marguerite,
has considerable hlltrlonio ability, and on
several occasions, notably in the jewel
scene, before the Virgin's shrine, and in
the dungeon, rose to great moments. Could
site cultivate a more natural voice antl less
forced intonation. Miss Martin's work
would be much better appreciated than at
present. The same fault spoils the Valen
tine of Mr. Nichols. His acting was strong
in the duel and death scene, but his rani
inz destroyed the illusion.
Ulysses IS. Davis, who essayed the part
of Faust, hag little conception of its op
portunities; his acting was very unreal
and disappointing. Mrs. Vanderhoff sup
plies some capital comedy in the part of
Martha; the frisky flirtations of the old
nurse with the devil always affords a pleas
ant relief from the graveness of the trag
edy, and in last night's production proved
the be*t bits of acting during the evening.
H l'he staging of the play is line through
out, aud the electrical elfects add very
much to the brilliancy and weirdne3s of
the scene. The su iden blazing of the
cross over the cathedral, when Mephisto
exults over the fall of Fauat, the garden
scene, the duel, the orgy of the sprites and
bogiei on tne Brocken,and the tlnal recep
tion of Marguerite by the angels, are all
produced with vivid and impressive effect.
During an entr'acte a spirited two-step
"Niagara," the composition of Nat. D,
Mann, the business manager of ihe com
pany, was played by the orchestra, and
was greeted with well-meritea applause.
Faust will be repeated this and tomor
row evenings and at a special matinee on
OrtrHEi'M.— Another crowded house
greeted the strong bill presented at this
popular resort last night. Every act was
roundly applauded while the big favorites
were recalled several times. The Ander
sons divided honors with Chas. B. Ward,
who was at his best last night and ren
dered his character songs with a snap and
a vim that made him a greater favorite
than ever and earned him a series of en
cores. The Fillipis. the giddy dancers
from gay "Paree," will closo their engage
ment on Sunday night, as they have
eastern engagements which they cannot
cancel. It is seldom that such artists are
seen here, and it is well worth one's
while to see them. The Atlios family
also leave, and to miss seeing their great
acrobatic feats is to miss a great treat.
The bill is a strong one throughout and
worthy the patronage of the best people
who have attended so liberally this week.

pleasant evening's entertainment, and to

New York, March 31, 1800.
Wall street has heen somewhat dis
turbed during the past week by the call of
the treasury for'JO percent of the proceeds
of the late loan deposited with the banks.
The banks were in a well-fortified position
to meet the demand, but it is perhaps not
surprising if they have been willing to
make the most of the circumstance.. For
the last two weeks, commercial failures
have been more frequent, which has in
creased the caution towards discounts, and
the usual April transfers of money to the
interior, for effecting the settlements due
at that period, will soon be here; odd to
which the fact that the banks do not usua'ly
disregard fair occasions for advancing
their rate of interest—these considerations
have made possible an advance in
the rate for call loans, and have
put a check on time loans,
and caused some contraction iv
the discounting of commercial paper. The
"bear element iv simulation has not
failed to turn th»se circumstances to ac
count, and has especially sought to en
courage distrust aa to the condition of
commercial credit and to excite apprehen
sion of further failures among merchants.
At the moment, the hanks have no special
interest in discouraging these tactics, as
they help the upward tendency in the rate
of interest; but, at the same time, there is
in banking circles no real apprehension of
any approaching stringency, and the feel
ing is general that, when the funds return
which may be withdrawn for the April set
tlements, the money market will setilo into
an easy condition and so remain until, at
least, the autumn outflow o,' currency sets
It is not surprising that this new tempo
rary factor in the market has been attend
ed with some selling of stocks and that the
bears have made it an occasion for putting
out free lines of shorts. The bulls have
not regarded these conditions as favorable
to buying, and have therefore offered no
resistance to (he attacks of their opponents
but hope to find their opportunity when
the time comes for covering the short
The market has also been sensitive to
the new moves on the chessboard of F.uro
pean politics. From such vague accounts
as the diplomats are willing to let out, it
seems that international relations and
therefore international policies are under
going some highly important changes. The
press accounts appear to take it for grant
ed that, at last. Great Britain has really
untered into partnership with the dreibund.
Iti respect to what matters, or to what
extent, she has committed herself to the
joint policy of Germany. Austro-Hungary
and Italy, nothing is yet certain. But
as her purpose seems to be mainly to
provide an offset to the threatening atti
tude of the Franco-Russian alliance, and
as colonial policies now enter largely into
all the current international disputes, it
would seem highly probable that if there
be a new alliance it may cover an earnest
and comprehensive common policy. An
agreement between England and the three
great powers of central Europe would
Beem to afford an invaluable guarantee of
future peace on the European continent;
but, for the moment, and until the policies
of the quadruple alliance come to be
known and estimated, there is ample
reason why the financiers of Eu
rope should maintain an observant
attitude and await the upshot. Hence,
this new course of events lias caused a halt
in business on the foreign bourses; prices
have declined for national securities, and
Americans have suffered in sympathy with
these conditions. There is good reason to
hope, however, that if this reported new
alliance is an accomplished fact it may
prove*to be the beginning of a general
European revival of confidence, from
tviiich this country, as one in the family of
nations, could not fail to reap its share of
One factor that should contribute to a
recovery of confidence is the marked im
provement in the relation between our im
ports and exports of merchandise which
has occurred within the last two or three
months. The exports nave shown a large
rate of increase, while the imports have,
on the average, materially declined; the
result being a condition of the balance of
foreign trade much moie in our favor than
for any time during the last two years.
This means a cessation of the over-impor
tation which has been glutting our markets
and encouraging distrust of credits iv cer
tain brandies of trade; while it shows a
healthier condition of the export markets
aud of the agricultural interest.
Moreover, it lias an indirect but import
ant bearing upon the condition of the
treasury finances. It means, so far as it
is due to tho commercial movement, a
probable reduction in the exports of spe
cie; and as it is the exports of gold which
constitute the chief necessity for drawing
it from the treasury, the less gold is need
ed for export purposes, tho less will be the
amount of noteu presented at the sub
treasury for redemption. This probability,
so far as it represents a better regulated
condition of our foreign interests, is a mat
ter of congratulation. And yet there aro
considerations whicli make the conversions
of notes far from being the unmitigated
evil they have been considered. The
notes converted are held in treasury (so
long as they are not needed to sup
ply deficiencies of revenue),and can be ex
tinguished without obstacle or further out
lay, whenever congress chooses tosoorder.
There are. at present $103,000,000 net of
the two kinds of legal tender iv the hands
of the government. Tho treasury also
holds $128.000,04)0of "free" gold, and has
silver bullion, held against the notes oi
1890, which at its present market value is
wonb over $90,000,000. These two sums,
aggregating $218,000,000, are offsets
against the notes ami have been legally
provided for the sole purpose of liquidat
ing them. Thus, the liquidation of $323,
--0011,000 of leg-l tenders is already pro
vided for, and only $1(10,000.000 remains
for oilier treatment or offset. It will
thus be seen how much b?tter position
the finances are iv. for dealing with the
legal tender question, than is generally
supposed. In this situation of affairs, it
becomes a very interesting question,—how
long it will take for the treasury to gain
control of this balance of $1(10.000,000 of
notes through the current process of con
versions? If the exchanges of notes for
goid were continued at the average rate of
tbe two last yaars, $ I 10,000,000 of this
residue would be in control of the treas
ury in the spring of 1897,—assuming that
the income of the government covered its
These are matters for reflection and for
congratulation. A governihent whose de

•Hxtent is not a fit object for the sneers
and discredit that foreign critics choose
to cast upon ours. The fact is
plain that, almost unconsciously and cer
tainly from no great sagacity of manage
ment, the treasury question, and with it
the broader currency question, is on the
way to settling itself by an unexpected
process. Members of congress would do
well to weigh in advance the situation
which this drift is developing. It will
come with a very imperative force and will
not wait for the completion of the slowly
hatching schemes of currency theorists.
It will, moreover, compel a settlement of
the broader aspects of the currency ques
tion in a very summary sort of way. This
is one of many influences which, little ob
served, are working together to bring in a
run of better regulated business than wo
have known for the last generation.
